Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship

Want to spend your summer learning how to do Data Science for Good at the The University of Chicago?

There will be an Eric and Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good Summer Fellowship information session hosted by Zahra Ashkotrab (iSchool) and Elissa Redmiles (UMD CS) on Wednesday 1/27 @5pm CSI2117.

This fellowship is targeted at college seniors and graduate students.

Information session will include talks on past projects, fellowship overview, and Q&A session.

The Eric & Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good Fellowship is a University of Chicago summer program for aspiring data scientists to work on data mining, machine learning, big data, and data science projects with social impact. Working closely with governments and nonprofits, fellows take on real-world problems in education, health, energy, public safety, transportation, economic development, international development, and more.

For three months in Chicago they learn, hone, and apply their data science, analytical, and coding skills, collaborate in a fast-paced atmosphere, and learn from mentors coming from industry and academia.
